At a basic level it mimics the Skills Funding Agency calculator (called ‘Estimate my apprenticeship funding’). However, it enriches the experience, such as by allowing the user to input negotiated rates, set durations, forecast employer and provider incentives as well as emailing a PDF report of the results.
FAS has been developed by Smart Assessor, working in partnership with Nick Linford, editor of FE Week and author of the Complete Guide to Funding Apprenticeships.
